Robert Duffy, Marc Jacobs President, Post Naked Photo on Twitter
Robert Duffy, the President of Marc Jacobs, posted a naked photograph of a man pole dancing from the after party for Marc Jacobs' Fall 2010 collection and promptly deleted his account. Duffy was on a veritable Twitter binge up until the photo was posted as he updated seemingly constantly on details and happenings before, during, and after Marc Jacobs' Fall 2010 runway show.
Duffy, who has some 6,700 followers on Twitter, tweeted the photo of a naked man apparently pole dancing at Jacobs' after-party on the 18th floor of the Standard hotel on Monday night but then deleted the photo and ultimately his account. "The pic of the guy from the party was taken down because Fr-d didn't want it up anymore. I thought it harmless. His wife didn't. Sorry," Duffy tweeted the following morning. The photo was apparently of an entertainer by the name of, assumingly, Fred.
Duffy posted a number of other party photos from the night including one of an extremely inebriated Marc Jacobs and himself which garnered comments from followers commenting on Jacobs' apparently drunken state. Duffy replied to the comments with a tweet saying, "NO [Marc] wasn't drunk in that picture," he tweeted. "He was happy and giving me a kiss. Be nice please."
As of this morning his account was deleted.
